      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is CO with A :heart: 6 :heart:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, BTN calls $0.15, 1 fold, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.47) Q :diamond: A :club: 7 :diamond: (3 players)
      BB bets $0.10, Hero?
      In one hand I dont close the action, so I dont really wanna raise here. On the other, what should I do on ANY turn, if I just call here? Too many bad cards could come, that'd incline me to raise, but I do not close the action... ah

      Hi imimba,

      I would raise here for thin value/protection and we can raise fold.

      These small donks are either bets to induce or some weaker made hand/draw.

      So I would raise to 0.5 or so, bet turn and look to check the river.

      Even though we don't close the action we force BTN into making a tougher choice and he can still call with worse. The problem with just calling is that we can easily get raised out of the pot and we give BTN a cheap price for his draws. And as you said there are many bad turns that either scare us or our opponents.
